On approach to Bertie Taggart's airstrip - the largest field near top right, with a darkish track running up it. It was behind his house, on the old Coleraine Road out of Ballymoney towards Macfin. The strip had a significant slope, so takeoffs were always downhill, to the south-west, and landings, as here, were to the north-east. Bertie moved away some time ago and as far as I know the airstrip is no longer in use.
